ORA Green Damicornis
One of the most satisfying parts of keeping a reef tank is watching your corals grow. For some hobbyists (especially anxious beginners), this can be the very best part of reefing. Particularly for first-time SPS coral keepers, Pocillopora damicornis is a great choice in this regard. The ORA Green Damicornis is a two-toned green survivor. It features a bright yellow-green base with forest green polyps. This rather dense, short branched coral is graced with numerous tiny polyps. Not only is it extremely fast growing but it is also very adaptable and a breeze to propagate. Thus, it is a perfect “beginner coral.”
The ORA Green Damicornis is not very finicky about where it grows; so long as it receives moderate-strong water flow, it tolerates virtually any tank placement and lighting.

The Benefits of Farmed Green Damicornis
Captive-bred livestock offers many advantages over wild-caught specimens. Because it is cultured in captivity, it is better adapted to living in an aquarium. It tends to be more disease resistant and harbors fewer pests. And, it is also better able to handle shipping/acclimation stress! By purchasing captive-bred Green Damicornis, you support the aquaculture of marine organisms and help to make our hobby more sustainable.
